the best Cash tribute band I've ever heard. They are as good as the original.
It doesn't get any better than The Rhythm Riders--" Rhythm Riders vocalist Dee Price has sung and performed the
music of Patsy Cline, June Carter and other giants of the country music world
throughout California, New York and Ireland. For more than 15 years, Dee has
regaled audiences with her solid vocals and easy demeanor. For 5 years Dee was
accompanied by guitarist, Gil Reigers of the Johnny Mathis band. She has also
performed with Norm Hamlet and Biff Adams of Merle Haggard's band and Truett
Cunningham of Bob Wells Texas Playboys. Not to be outdone, Johnny's wife, Dee,
also entered the International Vocalist competition, earning a 9th place finish
in a field of 5000 contestants and 258 finalists. Together, they have
researched the archives of American Roots music and assembled a band capable of
recreating the sights and sounds of the hey-day of Country Western and
Americana Roots music.
